1994 Quinta do Noval Nacional

Post by AHB » 10:44 Thu 26 Sep 2013

190 cases made. Slightly cloudy with a medium rim that is bricking slightly. Rich and voluptuous on the nose, bringing a lovely combination of fruit and caramel, lovely to sit and sniff. Sweet and balanced entry, full of elegant fruit and gentle tannins. A wonderful elegance that persists through the palate - very flavoursome with lots of bubble gum but surprisingly little complexity. A lovely bubblegum aftertaste that is elegant and persistent and which is quickly overwhelmed by a massive and lengthy mouthfilling finish. Very fine port. 95/100. Drunk 16-Sep-13
